CNH Industrial Reman Adds Robotic Laser Cladding System

CNH Industrial Reman recently added a robotic laser cladding system to its remanufacturing facility. The technology adds cutting-edge capabilities to the remanufacturing process, drastically increasing core recovery and utilization. In addition, this technology helps lengthen the life cycle, increase availability and lower the cost of ownership for critical remanufactured components within the CNH Reman portfolio.

"Laser cladding is an additive manufacturing process, so we can apply different, or better, materials to the surface of parts without damaging the base material," said Josh Allen, salvage department supervisor at CNH Industrial Reman. "Not only does the laser cladding system help us fix things that once would have been scrap, but it also provides the capability to improve the wear and corrosion resistance of the component parts by impregnating the surface with different material options."

While laser cladding technology has been around since the 1980s, the metallurgical and laser technology has improved significantly over the past 10 years. The modern technology is so efficient that it can apply a weld to a component without damaging the base material and make it as hard, or in some cases, even harder than it was previously, often resulting in improved performance and life.
